New offer could tempt individuals to recycle their old mobiles

Individuals may be tempted to recycle their old mobile phones after Sony Ericsson announced it is releasing a new handset in its Xperia range.

The Xperia X8 is being labeled as a "great entertainment smartphone" and this could mean users might recycle their used mobiles in order to get one of the new handsets.

According to Sony Ericsson, the mobile has an array of enhanced multimedia features and it also has improved connectivity.

The mobile phone comes loaded with Google's open-source Android OS and the smartphone usability means users will be able to access a number of applications and games.

Product marketing manager Mr Timo Maassmann remarked: "We are delighted to announce Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 smartphone because we bring the best and fully featured mobile for our customers."

And the handset also has Timescape, an element that lets mobile users gain access to social networking sites in just one click of a button.

Last week, Three revealed it will be adding a number of models to its popular tariff, the One Plan.

A trio of smartphones will be offered by the network, including Nokia E63, Nokia 5230 and the Sony Ericsson Zylo.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "With all these new models hitting the shops, why not treat yourself to an upgrade? One of the easiest ways to get your hands on a new handset is to trade in your old phone for cash."
